“Not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Ate dinner with the entire crew. Two had fish and I had a salad. The fish was very good and the fries were excellent. We had heard other crew members recommend this restaurant and we were not dissapointed.

“Good haibut fish and chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

On our way to Victoria, we stopped Sidney lunch. We picked this small fish n chip palce from the navigation system from the rental car. It turned out to be a good pick. We had several oreders of fish n chips. The halibuts were the best.

We also likes the clam chowder. The chowder has small claims instead of chunks of large claims. The small claims taste better.

“Great food funky surroundings worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

This funky little restaurant in Sidney on Vancouver island is really worth visiting. Excellent fish and chips including the best gluten free batter ever! Nice staff as well. Go on Thursdays and you can enjoy the Thursday evening street market afterwards :)

“unexpected gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Fish on Fifth is tucked away, half a block off of the main street of Sidney. The menu has just enough variety without being too lengthy. Prices have risen in keeping with the price of seafood. The fish and chips are a favorite, also the fish taco with mango salsa. Opt for the yam fries with special dipping sauce.

The decor is fishy all the way. There is quirky, playful, beautiful in all public spaces. While you wait, practice knot tying with the ropes on each table.

“Will not return”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Over the past several years, we enjoyed this restaurant for their salmon and walnut burgers. However, they have managed to destroy even this simple food. Their yam fries were so greasy we could not eat them. And, when we hoped our experience was isolated, we returned to find the same situation. We will not return again.
